From the ruinous break-up of former Yugoslavia, Croatia emerged as an independent country composed of two contrasting cultures. The long stretch of coast that runs from Istria to Dalmatia bears a strong Italian influence, while the interior has a strong central European flavour. But it's Croatia's appeal as a sun 'n' sea destination that lures millions of holidaymakers. The yachting crowd has sprinkled glitter on the islands of Hvar and Korcula while cruise lines have made Dubrovnik an essential port of call on their Mediterranean circuit.
